Vidya Balan down with fever

Despite high fever, actress Vidya Balan shoots a song sequence for ‘The Dirty Picture’.  Vidya is essaying the role of Silk Smitha in the movie and she is totally giving herself to the character of one of the highly anticipated films of the year. Inspite suffering from high fever, she shot a song sequence.

Says a source, "The song was being shot in a lotus pond and it was on a tight schedule. Filming had to be wrapped up within two to three days, as those were the only dates available.
It required Vidya to stay in the pond for over four to five hours during the sequence."

Adds the source, "Vidya started feeling ill on the first day itself as she was in water for so long. She developed high fever.

Though director Milan Luthria asked his leading lady to take a breather, she was keen that the shoot continue."

If the shooting was stalled then the producer has to suffer a heavy loss.
